Today we are exploring Spain’s capital, Madrid. Known for its elegant boulevards and expansive parks - you’re going to want to do as much as you can in this amazing city.

Nowhere are there more restaurants and bars than in Spain's largest metropolis. You can marvel at the highlights of European painting in the Prado in the morning, spend your travel budget on one of the shopping streets in the afternoon and then stop in one of the many small tapas bars.

Flight ZH-MRD (00:00) I took the train from my hometown to Zurich Airport and flew with the airline Iberia. The flight time is about 2.5 hours. I landed at Madrid-Barajas Airport.

Taxi drive (01:08) from Airport MRD-Barajas to the Hotel (near Opera) there is a fix rate of €30 for one way.

Check-in and Room tour (01:26) at room007 Sol. The room was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Since I chose the cheapest room, I had no view, only of the inner courtyard. Shower and toilet were clean as well.

Plaza Mayor (03:25) is a major public space in the heart of Madrid, the capital of Spain. It was once the center of Old Madrid and was first built (1580–1619) during the reign of Philip III. Only a few blocks away is another famous plaza, the Puerta del Sol as well as the most famous food market called Mercado de San Miguel. The Plaza Mayor is for the people of Madrid and tourists to shop, walk around, eat, and enjoy the outdoors.

Breakfast (03:38) I had my first breakfast at a well-known churro bar called Chocolateria 1902 located between the Opera and Puerta del Sol.

Mercado de San Miguel (04:24) It is a place of pilgrimage for those looking for a special ingredient for their recipes or simply a different kind of tapas. I did a own video only from this market. Feel free to watch it here: https://youtu.be/P19h-mDAt40

Metro (04:52) Here you have a short instruction on how to buy a metro ticket from the machines. You get the metro card the very first time you buy it for €4 and can then charge it for €1.5 each way.

Train station Madrid Atocha (06:25) Atocha train station is the most important not only in Madrid but in all of Spain. Many of the high-speed trains that connect the capital with other cities in Spain depart from here. In addition, it has a breathtaking plant arrangement, which in this form appears to be very unique.

Retiro Park (06:45) The Buen Retiro Park or simply El Retiro ("Park of the Pleasant Retreat") is one of the largest parks of the city of Madrid, Spain. The Park belonged to the Spanish Monarchy until the late 19th century, when it became a public park.

Plaza de Toros (08:12) The Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas has existed since 1934 and is a symbol of Madrid. The largest bullring in Spain can be visited with an audio guide, without a guide. You can see the whole arena and get a lasting impression of the bullfight.

River Manzanares (11:30) The Manzanares is a river in central Spain. It is 92 km long and flows through the capital Madrid before flowing into the Jarama. It is the perfect place to escape from the big city and to relax in nature or to do sports such as jogging or yoga.

Puerta de Sol (12:25) The centrally located, lively Plaza de la Puerta del Sol is one of the landmarks of Madrid. Several historical and busy streets converge on this semicircular square. Some of the city's most representative symbols are also found here.
